jjrizo- That is true, at least I feel I have had the opportunity to have my say, and I did benefit from it. I got to vent, it was therapy.
joannadandy- You are such a dear, supportive friend, you can be part of my extended family anytime.
beck- You are a terrific person. The support here has been wonderful for Katie. Thank you!!!
SixofNine- LOL part of the reason for the letter was so I wouldn't cuss , it is easier to control that from the keyboard. My intent was to keep a "christain" attitude so I wouldn't give him the upper hand, more of a backhand is really needed
ugg- (((((((ugg)))))) thank you. My biggest concern is Katie, she is so tenderhearted but she is really starting to take this well. She sees how unchristain they are being and she wants absolutely nothing to do with the borg.
neyank- you are right, believe me I wanted to use the term cult in my letter, however I know he would have deleted it for sure if I did. I did feel man made organization was appropriate LOL.
Tink- ((((((Tink))))) hey girl. I am so glad to see you up and posting. Ya feeling better? Please do give me a call when you can. I had your number stored in my mobile and when I killed my phone (one drop on the hard ground too many) I have a new mobile same phone number. Katie and I are in a much better position as far as family shunning goes. 4 out of 5 siblings in my family are out. My dad never has been a jw. I am sorry to hear about your "worldly" relatives treating you that way too. I am like you, if I have something to say, I will say it. Hang in there Tink! ......and call me.
Shutterbug- wow thank you, what a compliment. I wrote from my heart. I thought about it for a few days so I could do it with a clear head. I found out (from my dad) about 5 minutes after it was sent that he and his family are camping until this weekend, my timing never has been great.<g> If I receive a reply I will post it. When it was ready to be sent, I called Katie in so she could hit the send button, she loved that.
